“Push-ups are fine and all, but… do you even lift, bro?” read part of the detailed caption posted alongside the video on Instagram by the National Park Service.
In a detailed caption, the National Park Service explained that several species of lizards in Zion National Park in the United States perform “push-ups” to show strength, establish territory, and attract a mate. They also added how lizards do “push-ups” by “elevating their heads and upper bodies in vigorous up-and-down motions.” Then they added wittily, “Do you still feel the burn?”
